REMARKS:
071500Z POSITION NEAR 35.5N 133.0E.
TROPICAL STORM 10W (MALOU), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 190 NM
WEST OF KYOTO, JAPAN, HAS TRACKED EAST-NORTHEASTWARD AT
16 KNOTS OVER THE PAST 06 HOURS. ANIMATED INFRARED
SATELLITE IMAGERY INDICATES THAT TS 10W CONTINUES TO
UNDERGO EXTRA-TROPICAL TRANSITION (ETT) WITH DEEP
CONVECTION SHEARED NORTHEAST OF THE LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION
CENTER (LLCC). TS 10W IS INTERACTING WITH A BAROCLINIC ZONE
SITUATED OVER THE SEA OF JAPAN AND HAS BEGUN TO ATTAIN
A FRONTAL SIGNATURE IN SATELLITE IMAGERY. RECENT AMSU
CROSS-SECTIONS INDICATE A RAPIDLY WEAKENING WARM CORE.
BASED ON THIS EVIDENCE, THE SYSTEM HAS CLEARLY COMMENCED
ETT AND IS NOW TRACKING WITHIN STRONG MIDLATITUDE
WESTERLY FLOW UNDER 30-40 KNOTS OF VERTICAL WIND SHEAR.  
THERE IS HIGH CONFIDENCE IN THE CURRENT POSITION BASED
ON JMA RADAR DATA. THE CURRENT INTENSITY OF 35 KNOTS IS
BASED ON THE LOWER END OF DVORAK ESTIMATES, WHICH RANGE
FROM 30-45 KNOTS. TS 10W IS FORECAST TO ACCELERATE
EASTWARD AND IS EXPECTED TO COMPLETE ETT WITHIN THE NEXT
06-12 HOURS. MALOU SHOULD ALSO WEAKEN SIGNIFICANTLY AS IT
TRACKS ACROSS THE JAPAN ALPS, SO EXPECT A 20-25 KNOT EXTRA-
TROPICAL LOW TO PASS JUST NORTH OF THE KANTO PLAIN BY 08/09Z.
THE MODEL GUIDANCE REMAINS TIGHTLY-CLUSTERED AND SUPPORTS THIS
TRACK. THIS IS THE FINAL WARNING ON THIS SYSTEM BY THE JOINT TYPHOON
WARNING CENTER (NAVMARFCSTCEN). THE SYSTEM WILL BE CLOSELY
MONITORED FOR SIGNS OF REGENERATION. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE
HEIGHT AT 071200Z IS 13 FEET.//
